Born in Russia, moved to Brooklyn and lived in an apartment with a cerulean carpet, tucked in every single stuffed animal before bed, played Cinderella on the VCR over and over. I don’t like school but I like cinema and making photographs. The things I’m passionate about aren’t profitable. I prefer rays of sunlight on different surfaces, hopping fences at night into closed parks. Warm, grassy cracks in the pavement, three stories below.
